Default Power Prop Flying Gliders

I have also posted this in Toy Grade products, but I am not sure where this belongs. I purchased from an antique shop three toy grade gliders, in their origional packages. They appear to have age on them. They are called Power Prop Flying Gliders. There is no manufacturer's name on them and does not indicate where they were made (USA, etc.). One is a Lockheed P38J Lightning, has a number 7 on it. One is a Thunderolt F-47 D, has a number 5 on it, and one is a Focke Wulf 190 A-4, has a number 1 on it. All the packages have on the front is pictures of the planes they were supposed to simulate, a "bulls eye" with a three bladed prop in front of it, and it says "Fly with Power Prop Flying Gliders. There is no bar code or anything like that on it, so I believe they have some age. There is pictures of all the planes available on the back with a picture of assembly procedure. Each plane is numbered one through twelve. Does anyone know any history on these planes or any info if they have much value? All info appreciated greatly.

I have tried to upload pics, but it does not work. I think RC Universe is having some problems with uploading pics.

I am interesting in seeing the pictures and may be interested in a purchase if that is your intent.

Try posting just one picture at a time, this does work when the wrong server is up here.
